Tips for Removing Odors After a Fire Damages Your Tallahassee Home
A fire incident can injure the residents of a house and ruin various parts of the building and the possessions in it. The items that survive the fire damage can bring comfort, but when the smoke scent sets in, removing it from clothing, fabrics, furniture and other porous materials can seem like an impossible undertaking. Acting speedily to eliminate the odors is essential because the longer they remain in your house; the harder it is to remove them.
You can take several steps to eradicate smoke odors after a fire damages your Tallahassee residence. Begin by removing most items that have a smoke scent such as furniture, area rugs, clothing and wallpaper to streamline the process of eradicating smoke smells. If the weather allows, open the windows and place fans in your home to circulate the air. Ventilation helps to minimize the scent while drying out the moisture damage that happened in the fire extinguishing process.
You should also eliminate soot from fabrics to prevent secondary destruction because it is acidic. Since soot holds the scent, it is advisable to use an industrial vacuum to eradicate the oily residue. Make sure you hold the nozzle of the vacuum cleaners above the carpeting, fabric or drapery to prevent it from staining or damaging the materials further. To deal with smoke smell, also consider sealing the porous surfaces that may have absorbed it such as raw, unfinished wood.
It is also essential to use the odor removal services that SERVPRO offers. We have the sophisticated equipment and expertise required to eliminate smoke smells after fire damage. Our technicians usually combine several deodorization techniques to solve odor problems. The same deodorizing product or technique cannot solve all scent issues. Some smells require direct spraying, some fogging and others activated oxygen. Our odor control technician (OCT) can use safe and efficient strategies to achieve the best results possible using equipment like:
· Hydroxyl generators
· Thermal foggers
· Ventilation box fans
· Ozone generators
· Air scrubbers
We can also clean and sanitize your belongings by using ultrasonic technology to remove soot. Ultrasonic cleaning can restore ceramics, glass, plastics, hardware, toys, cloth lampshades and blinds among other items. Once our SERVPRO technicians deodorize your house, it can smell fresh once again. Our deodorization process seeks to make the fire and smoke damage seem “Like it never even happened.”
